Anxiety and Depression in People with Arthritis

Over 6 million Canadians, young and old, struggle with the pain and disability of arthritis. People with arthritis are more likely to have symptoms of anxiety and depression than people without arthritis. It is important for people with arthritis to take care of both their physical and their mental health, even more so now with the added stress brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Arthritis Research Canada is conducting research to better understand the prevalence of anxiety and depression in people with arthritis, why this is occurring, and what we can do to address it. Our research seeks to improve the level of care provided to people with arthritis by helping inform healthcare decision making and by providing patients with the tools and resources to assist with their own self-care efforts.
